Awake & Sing!

New Yiddish Rep Presents:

Vakh Oyf Un Zing

Written by Clifford Odets, translated into Yiddish by Chaver Paver

New Yiddish Rep presents Clifford Odets’ 1935 masterpiece Awake And Sing! beginning November 25th at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. A Yiddish version of Awake And Sing! was produced on Broadway by the Federal Theatre Project in 1938 and it is this translation that will be performed in the upcoming Off-Broadway revival with English supertitles.

Generally considered Clifford Odets’ finest play, Awake And Sing! is the story of the Bergers, a lower-middle-class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. The play recalls that this country was founded as the land of opportunity for immigrants who came with an enduring belief in the American dream.

Under the direction of New Yiddish Rep artistic director, David Mandelbaum, the international cast of Awake And Sing! will feature Ronit Asheri (star of Yiddishpiel Theater), Amy Coleman (original productions of Beehive & The Last Session), Lea Kalisch (CocoaDios, Bountiful), Mira Kessler (God of Vengeance), Moshe Lobel, David Mandelbaum (Waiting for Godot, Yentl), Eli Rosen (Rhinoceros), Israeli film star Gera Sandler (A Film Unfinished, Jellyfish, A Tale of Love and Darkness), and Luzer Twersky (“Transparent,” new Netflix documentary One of Us).

Performed in Yiddish with English Supertitles

Running Time: 2 hours || 1 Intermission

Tickets: General Admission $45

Premium Seating (includes 1 glass of wine or other beverage): $72
